If you prefer to act as a smartphone, sorry but the official app Facebook Business Suite for Android And iOS, dedicated to the management of Facebook and Instagram pages, does not yet allow you to change the creation date of the pages.

If you want to change the foundation date of a page via your mobile phone, open Facebook from the browser (eg. Chrome on Android or Safari on iOS), turn on the desktop view of the site and proceed as I explained previously on computer. To activate the desktop view of a site in Chrome, just press the button (…) at the top right and tick the option Request desktop site; to do this in Safari you have to press the icon of sharing and select the icon Request desktop site from the menu that opens.
